The AMP1158A from Exodus Advanced Communications is a Solid-State Power Amplifier that operates from 0.7 to 6 GHz. It delivers a saturated output power of 30 W with more than 44 dB of gain. This linear Class A/AB amplifier has built-in protection circuits with a turn ON/OFF time of less than 5 μs. It has spurious levels of less than -60 dBc, harmonics better than -20 dBc, and is suitable for all single channel modulation standards. The SSPA requires a DC supply from 28 to 30 V and draws less than 7 A of current. It is available in an ultra-compact small form factor, light-weight package that measures 105 x 75 x 30 mm and has SMA-female connectors. The amplifier can be used for EMI/RFI testing, general communications, and for all signal channels modulation applications.
